Susan Urba, MD, Medical Director, Symptom Management & Supportive Care Program, University of Michigan, says that treatment-related factors used to stratify patients to prevent chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting are the actual chemotherapy drugs. Dr Urba says that there are specific lists of medications that breakdown the medications into categories, such as highly emetogenic and moderately emetogenic. Dr Urba uses the medication cisplatin as an example of one of the widely used, highly emetogenic treatments used.
